Welcome to the Official Town of Spider Lake Website

The Town of Spider Lake is located in the upper northeastern corner of Sawyer County, Wisconsin (abutting Bayfield County to the north and Ashland County to the east). The Chequamegon National Forest, County Forest and State of Wisconsin land make up more than half of the town’s 108 square miles.  Numerous lakes (almost 100) cover nearly another 9 square miles (with 109 lineal miles of lake shoreline). In view of these characteristics, it comes as no surprise that Spider Lake is considered to be an integral part of Wisconsin’s Northwoods.
